What I Know(Diabetic’s thoughts)
It just takes one bite
And my sugar stays high all night.
One can of a regular coke
And feeling tired afterward is no joke.
Want to overeat
But knowing inside it will make my blood sugar peak.
At birthday parties pass up on the cake
Because you hate that “sugar high” headache.
Feeling tired all day long
The food you ate and what kind was all wrong.
Wanting to get in shape
Exercising only with enough calorie intake.
Going out on the town to a favorite food place
Catching the frown you’re given from your loved one’s face.
Being told “You know that is wrong to do”,
But asking them, “And just who the heck are you?”
It’s not thought about
Never easy without a doubt.
Diabetes is a complication and disease
But doesn’t have to bring you to your knees.
Take control, take back your life.
Make it count regardless of any strife.

High blood sugar is commonly linked to diabetes, and can be dangerous if ignored and untreated. If you’ve recently been diagnosed with high blood sugar, don’t panic—there are methods (aside from taking insulin, if advised by your doctor) that can bring it down over the long term. “Type 2 diabetes patients did not bring it on themselves,” says diabetes and metabolism expert Elena Christofides, MD. “This is not a moral failing.” Above all, be patient with yourself—you didn’t get bad blood sugar overnight, and with steady work it can be managed.https://www.msn.com/en-us/health/wellness/blood-sugar-secrets-that-really-work-say-physicians/ss-AAUt9OA?ocid=msedgntp#image=1
Diabetes is at record levels in the U.S.—nearly 34 million Americans, or 10.5% of the population, is affected. The condition occurs when the body is unable to adequately process blood sugar. That can damage blood vessels throughout the body, potentially leading to heart disease, stroke, blindness, and amputation. But diabetes generally doesn’t develop overnight. Little things you do regularly, without thinking, may be seriously raising your risk.https://www.eatthis.com/health/
